Police seek info on man that crashed mailboxes

By Judy Reed

The Kent County Sheriff’s Office is looking for information on a hit and run property damage crash that occurred in the 100 block of E. Muskegon Street in Cedar Springs last Friday, May 21.

According to Sgt. Todd Probst, they received a call about 9 p.m. May 21 that a vehicle had hit several mailboxes and a telephone pole at 100 E. Muskegon Street and then just kept going.

“It’s a wonder he didn’t hit any other cars, or people, or even the house,” said homeowner Richard Capek. He said the driver knocked down three mailboxes and Consumers Energy had to repair the telephone pole. He also noted that several pieces of the car were left in his yard, along with shards of glass.

Sgt. Probst said that according to witnesses, the car turned off 17 Mile and then went north on N. Park Street, and west on Beech Street. The vehicle was eventually abandoned in front of a downtown business, and the suspect then fled on foot.

The police are asking any other witnesses or anyone who might have information to contact the Kent County Sheriff’s Office at (616) 632-6100 or Silent Observer at (616) 774-2345.
